Happy fall y’all! 🍂 Excited to host a hike during the autumn foliage season at the infamous Max Patch! Meeting at 9:45AM at the Lemon Gap trailhead on the Appalachian Trail. Bring at least 3L of water per person (more if you are bringing furry friends), a lunch/snacks, and wear sturdy shoes/layers! Carpooling is encouraged since this is a lengthy drive, and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
